Draft Corporate Business Plan 2021-2025

The Shire has finalised its draft Corporate Plan and now Council wants you to have a say! The Shire is committed to providing opportunities for our community and stakeholders to be involved in the decisions that affect them. The Corporate Plan maps out the work the Shire will strive to achieve over the next five years to respond to the aspirations and achieve the goals developed by the community in the Strategic Community Plan. The Plan is now available on Shire’s website. A copy of the draft document can also be found in Shire’s offices and libraries in Wyndham and Kununurra.

All feedback will be considered and the final Plan will be presented to Council for adoption in July 2021.
